Picture Books & Resources
A bedtime story helps establish a nighttime routine, help with stress levels and develop a love of reading. Not all the books are ideal bedtime reading but all are about bedtime, nighttime or falling asleep. Some of the books are perfect to read if your child struggles to fall asleep or is scared about the dark. Other books focus on a resistance to going to bed and sleeping. Children will relate to the characters who are going through similar issues to themselves.
These resources relate to the book, author and illustrator. The number of resources varies subject to subject. Please check they are appropriate for your specific needs before using them with children. If you have any suggestions please get in touch!
